James E Clements is seeking his third term
on the Bartow City Commission and is fac-
ing Gerald J. Cochran, who is making his
20th run at the. commission seat.
Cochran is advocating change while the
incumbent has said the city is moving .
steadily toward recovering from the worst
economic disaster in recent memory.
They've also faced each other before. In
2009 Clements won against Cochran with 72
percent of the vote.
Cochran said he is running again because
he feels he represents the common person
who has no input in how the city is run.
"The main reason I'm running is because
it seems the citizens have no say-so. The
way things are running, the city is looking at
bankruptcy down the road," he said.
As examples of this, Cochran cites the
money the city is losing on the public golf
course. Last year it took in $1.1 million while


that started 19 months ago. He also cited
the city's attempt to restore the Thompson
Cigar Factory with grants and private money
instead of local tax dollars. Hle furthered
stated he is a better choice to return to the
commission because he has a better handle
on the facts than his opponent.
Clements has been a good city commis-
sioner and he certainly seems to have a good
command of the facts. We think the city is a
better place because of his service. We are
grateful that Gerald Cochran believes in the
democratic process. We, too, believe that at
the very least, his 20 attempts at running
for city commission force his opponents to
answer questions during an election.
We do, however, like Mr. Clements' an-
swers -better and think he deserves another
term on our city commission.
That's why we recommend Clements in this
race.


Too man~
SSeldom has there been a police inves-
tigation with so many couldd, should,
would" loose ends.
The Sanford police chief who "vol-
untarily" removed himself from office
probably did the right thing but for the
wrong reason: it was not the failure of
his department to file charges that cries
out for better leadership. It is the failure
to conduct a sufficiently thorough
investigation to ensure fairness to all
parties.
And the fact that details of the case
are being leaked out piecemeal only
underscores the impression that the full
truth either is not known or is not being
disclosed.
This much is uncontested: an un-
armed teenage boy, suspended from
school for 10 days on a minor drug
charge, was shot to death by a "neigh-
borhood watch captain" who followed a
person he considered to be a suspicious
character, despite being told by a police
dispatcher that there was no need for
him to do so.
That is the first "coullda, should,
would" in this case. Cops are trained to
evaluate "suspicious characters," and,
if indicated, to take them into custody
with minimum chance of injury to
either the officer or the suspect.

What caused the confrontation
between young Trayvon Martin and
George Zimmerman is not known, and
may never be known.
Zimmerman claims that he was
attacked and was defending himself.
His detractors allege that he made an
unprovoked attack.
Even what should be the simplest


1.


evidence proof of the presence or
absence of injuries Zimmerman says he
sustained to his nose and the back of
his head apparently was not pre-
served:
More couldd, should, woulda"
Unexplained is the city of Sanford's
outrage over the surreptitious release of
police reports that support the depart-
ment's findings that Zimmerman com-
mitted no crime.
By contrast, allegations of his culpa-
bility are barely challenged.
It's been more than a month. Why the
secrecy?
Secrecy does little to create confi-
dence in the thoroughness of the inves.
tigation and the appropriateness of the
findings.
An ABC News report that the senior
investigator in the case wanted to file a
manslaughter charge, but the state at-
torney's office said there was not prob-
able cause, drew a lukewarm denial
from the city.
Historically, grand juries have been
empaneled when cases are as murky
as this one appears to be. It gives the
state attorney a chance to let impartial
citizens take a look. American jurispru-
dence places great stock in the findings
of grand juries.


This would appear to be a textbook
'case for grand jury review.

Is George Zimmerman an over-
zealous vigilante, as his accusers allege,
or a well-meaning citizen defending
himself against a younger, more athletic
attacker, as he claims?
I most assuredly do not know, and
there has not been enough indisput-
able evidence disclosed to the public to
prove or disprove either premise.
But Spike Lee jumped into the fray by
tweeting a reported 240,000 followers,
giving them the supposed home ad-
dress of George Zimmerman.
Two problems: -


It wa's the wrong George Zimmerman;
the shooter lived miles away.
And even the wrong Zimmerman
hadn't lived there for seven years. It is
the home of his elderly mother and
stepfather, who have fled their home
after receiving hate mail and death
threats.
One vigilante is too many; recruiting
another 240,000 vigilantes is not the
solution.

(S.L. Frisbie is retired. In his 71 years,
he has learned that there often is merit
in moving sloudy, especially when the
movement consists of jumping to con-
clusions.)

the city paid $1.6 million to maintain it. He
claims the city pays its employees too much
money and allows them to waste time, and
it uses consultants and outside attorneys too
much and city employees not enough. .
Clements says that while Bartow did well
during the boom of 2005 and 2006 the bot-
tom falling out of the economy hurt things
everywhere.
Now with the work of City Manager George
Long and Finance Director David Wright
and the city's work on developing a Strategic
Plan there seems to be light at the end of
this tunnel that could guide the city for the
next 15 years,
Clements said the city is headed for bet-
ter times. He cites a report from Main Street
Bartow that nine new businesses have come
to Main Street with the incubator program

Gary Baker uses primarily papers from Asia to create his series of kimolnos that have been -
abstracted to colors and patterns to give the illusion of kimonos. Baker, a professor at Polk State
College for about 37 years, said he is the elder statesman" of the art department there. His
works have a sense of quilting and of weaving, which may be influenced by the basket weaving
class he teaches. He is among the PSC art professors whose work is featured in a show at

The sheriff's office then got a seizure
warrant for all animals on the property and
found the animals that they saw a month
earlier were in worse condition. Upon serv-
ing the seizure warrant the next day, officers
found 65 animals that included 10 dogs, a
duck, a rabbit, six finches, six pigeons, 10
doves, two parakeets, a box turtle, a mock-
ingbird, and seven various chickens and
roosters. All the animals were seized.
During the course of searching for and
impounding these animals, officers not-
ed there was no food in any of the pens
other than some old wet -seed in some of
the bird cages. There were also no bags
or cans of dog food anywhere on the
premises, the sheriff's office reported.
Booked into the Polk County Jail were:
Linda Sue Gibson, 66, 680 S. Oak Ave,
Bartow, for 11 counts animal cruelty; Ray-
mond Edward Gibson, 62, 680 S. Oak Ave,
Bartow, for 11 counts animal cruelty; and
David Joel Boyette, 42, 665 S. Orange Ave,
Rarrow for 11 rnountR animni crunelty


Three people were each charged with
11 counts of animal cruelty and 65
animals were taken from twTo houses on
South Oak Avenue Friday, March 23, the
Polk County Sheriff's Office reports.
Animal control officers had responded
on Feb. 29 to 680 South Oak Ave. and 665
South Oak Ave., to a report of neglected
animals. Linda Sue Gibson allowed officers
to watch dogs in both yards and two more
dogs she brought out from inside 680 Oak
Ave. None of the 12 dogs had food or water
and were in various states of malnutrition,
had open sores and hair loss, the sheriff's
office reports. Officers told Gibson to seek
veterinarian care and rabies shots.
Officers returned to the houses last
Thursday to check on the animals. When
they knocked there was no answer at
first, then upon louder knocking, a man
who identified himself as Eddie Gibson
came out of the residence at 680 S. Oak
Ave. He said he did not want to show
animals to officers at that time and he
told them no vet care had been sought

through the slides and how important
it was to stay on top of getting checked,
the slide movement stopped and it be-
came more of a conversation between
him and audience. He lauded his table
as being the best in the room and kept
asking them how he was doing and gave
them advice on how to deal with the
nasty drugs that are necessary to take
like he was talking to friends.
"One of the people at my table asked
me if I remembered her," he said. "I
paused because sometimes when peo-
ple ask me that they then turn around,"
the colon cancer specialist said.
At the end of his speech when he
was told he had two minutes to go, he
said, "I don't know how long I've been
up here. I feel like I'm in my own living
room or talking to myself in the mirror."
But he also was adamant about how
important it is to take care of yourself
and how ir'nportant it is to listen to your
family, because they suffer as much as
those who are afflicted with the disease.
He tgld of a nurse he worked with
whose daughter was trying to get a li-
cense as a hair stylist and was practicing
by cutting her dad's hair. She noticed a
spot on her dad's head and mentioned
that it didn't look good. Her father
said he'd had it for years and it wasn't
anything to worry about. The nurse, he
said, looked at it and they convinced
him he should have it checked out. It
turned out it was melanoma, but it was.
early enough that it didn't spread and
when it removed he seemed to free of
cancer.
"Twenty years later he is still with us,"
Saco said.
In his moment at the microphone,.
John Hutto, the man generally credited
with starting the Relay.For Life in Bar-
tow in 1992, honored the city's residents
and their devotion to the event that
draws thousands.
"Many in the Bartow community
come out for this public service. They
come from government, clubs and
everywhere to be celebrity servers. They
came out to serve you," he said.
Then 39 people walked to the stage,
stood before the diners, and with Dr,
Karen Lindblad in front, they danced
for about 10 minutes.
The three-hour banquet came to
an end with Pat Calandros closing the
ceremony with cupcakes. She told the
story of how we are always wishing for
something but getting another birthday
is among the most precious.
"Birthdays are a sign of life," she said.

JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

The room held nearly 500 people,
most of whom were cancer survivors,
as evidenced by the number of people .
who stood at the end when survivors
were asked to do so.
And though the subject was a deadly
disease, it was a party. Celebrity waiters
danced on stage, the keynote speaker
who spoke about colon cancer ex-
-. changed jokes with the audience and
fielded more questions from them than
the slides he showed, and at the end ev-
eryone sang the "Happy Birthday" song
as each received a colorfully topped
cupcake with a candle celebrating the
fact they made it to another birthday.
That's how the annual Cancer Survi-
vor Dinner is. The event took place at
the Bartow Civic Center in celebration
of cancer survivors and those taking
part in the Relay For Life for Bartow
and Fort Meade. Bartow's event is at
the high school football stadium on
April 20-21 and Fort Meade's is
April 6-7 at the American Legion.
S"You are the wind beneath our
wings,"' said dinner organizer Priscilla
Quina kicking off the event Tuesday.
"You show courage, energy and convic-
tion when you have none to share."
The banquet had plenty of informa-
tion letting people know how to deal
with cancer from first diagnosis to how
to live with it and how to geti screened
beforehand, but because many there
have had to deal with the disease
already it centered more around the
happiness of those who are in remis-
sion and are recovering from something
where cures are still very few.
In promoting Watson Clinic and its
Center for Cancer Care &~ Research,
which is the medical agency behind
the survivor dinner, public relations
manager Nancy Martinez said, "There
is- a 67 percent survival rate (at Watson).
So that means what about the other 30
percent? There is stil a lot of work to be
done."
Then she introduced the keynote
speaker, Dr. Louis Saco, CEO and
chairman of the board and gastroen-
terologist who is also the team physi-
cian for the Flying Tigers minor league
Baseball team. In setting up what was
his 50 minute talk that was supposed
to be about colon cancer, since March
is Colon Cancer Awareness Month, Mar-
tinez said he threw out the first pitch at
the Tigers-Yankees baseball game last

If you need help with filing your income
taxes, the United Way adid some of its
partners can help you out with a group of
IRS-trained volunteers. .
In locations across the county, these
volunteers are ready to file your tax returns
electronically, provided you meet certain
criteria. In some locations, there is an in-
come cap of $50,000, depending on who's
providing the service in that location,
according to Scott Lonsberry, community
project manager for the United Way
"This type of service has been provided
by AARP and others for a number of
years," Lonsberry explained, but this year,
"it's being advertised and coordinated
through United Way."
Also, in some areas, appointments are
required, while in others it's a first-come,

Jones said Legoland and the DOA had
been discussing ways to partner since
the attraction opened five months ago,
and this exhibit was the result of those
discussions. He said the renovated
greenhouse "extends what was here and
celebrates agriculture in an interactive
way that makes learning about it fun."
P~utnam echoed Jones, adding: "It's
great to breathe new life into an old
building, and it's an exciting opportu-
nity to reach a million people a year
to celebrate both our tourism and our
agriculture. This is an opportunity for
visitors to have an hands-on experience
with agriculture. They can see, feel and
touch where their food comes from. It's
just great."
The displays take visitors through
a Florida farm from seed to harvest
through hands-on and visual displays
that demonstrate the six stages of pro-
duction, from seeding to harvesting and
serving.
Putnam also told the gathered 4H.
club members and Futtire Farmers of
America that agriculture "is a pillar of
our economy and we sell our products
to more than 120 countries. It also has
a $100 billion impact on our economy
and provides more than a million jobs."
Putnam also added Legoland is one of


Polk County's primary employers, with
more than 1,000 people on its payroll.
Jones said another 200 people will be

Legoland and 'the Florida Department
of Agriculture joined forces Trhurseday to
open a new agriculture-centered attrac-
tion at the Winter Haven theme park.
On hand to christen the new Fresh
from Florida Greenhouse was Agricul-
ture Commissioner Adam Putnam of
Bartow, accompanied by his 5-year-old
s'on, and Lego enthusiast, Hughes and
Legoland Florida General Manager
Adrian Jones.
The new greenhouse, which offers a
hands-on experience for visitors, shows
off various types of agriculture and agri-
cultural products from the state. It even
has two simulated cows so youngsters
can experience milking.
The Fresh From Florida exhibit is
housed in what was once the Cypress
Gardens' Conservatory, freshly reno-
vated with a half million dollar facelift
and transformation, which included
reworking the air conditioning system,
rebuilding the interior and establishing
the interactive displays.
Jones said the 5,400-square-foot
renovation took about three months to
complete. It is located near the entrance
to the park.

cerned Hall. He said not contacting them is
against the department's policy.
"We have to have a meeting on com-
munications," he said following the Town
Hall meeting Thursday at the Carver Rec-
reation Center. "There is nothing I can do
not knowing about (things).
He said he, Lt. Gary McLin and crime
analyst Lyn Bryan regularly attend
monthly meetings of Eastside Posi-
tive Action Committee, also known as
EPAC, but he's never heard about crime
victims not being contacted.
He also heard complaints that there
was too much speeding up and down
U.S. Highway 17 and there should be
more patrols there.
Hall hopes the points of the message he
and Bryan were ~trying to get across were
understood by those who came. They
showed statistics Bryan has compiled
that show by far, most thefts and bur-
glaries occur when houses and cars are
left unsecured. Bryan pointed out most
often they are items in the garage. And, as
Gerald Cochran, who was in the audience,
pointed out, most crime occurs during
the day when people are at work.
However, the complaints and the per-
ception about law enforcement not caring
enough about the black community to
regularly attend to the area surfaced and
were loud.
Beulah Clark's question had that at its
heart. She was a burglary victim at her
house and fingerprints weie taken. She
said she called the Bartow Police Depart-
ment a number of times and got different
stories and never received a call from them
or any information about her case.
Hall told her there could be many rea-
sons the fingerprints dould have amounted
to nothing. It could be there was nothing to
match them with as the only fingerprints
law enforcement have are from people

who have been arrested. However, the
information that she didn't get a call back
concerned him and he asked her to con-
tact him Friday and they could find out
what is going on with the crime.
Her sentiments were echoed by
another resident who said his house
was burglarized a few years ago and he
never got a call back.
"My house was broken into and now
I hear this from another lady who says
the same thing. When someone breaks
into your house you feel so violated,
then when you call the police depart-
ment nothing happens," he said.
'"Seems like nothing's changed whether
you're young or old or black or white."
He also said he is frequently visited
by people trying to sell something and
they are not registered with the police
tdpa sme t assdaleespnetop allowed to
genuinely salespeople or someone try-
ing to case his home.
Also surfacing was that no one seems
to respond to all the gunshots and -
one resident of Tee Circle said he's had
enough and he doesn't believe the BPD
patrols his neighborhood. So, he has
started a petition drive to get the Polk
County Sheriff's Office to patrol his
neighborhood.
"A couple of months ago there was
a murder in Azalea Gardens and most
of the police officers were at a football
game," said Steve Mitchell, who said he
worked for the Bartow Police Depart-
ment and the sheriff's office in the 1970s.
He said because he believes no officers
patrol his neighborhood on Tee Circle
and parts of east Bartow, he started the
petition drive that now has 20 signatures.
His home on Tee Circle was burglar-
ized five times, including a time when
only his daughter was there, a situation '
he said he just cannot deal with.
"I heard tonight that Bartow is a good
place to live but they wouldn't feel that
way if they lived in Tee Circle,' he said.

"What are you doing because of this?
Are you patrolling?" she asked Hall.
Hall said they have responded to the
gunshots and he mentioned a couple of
people were arrested "just recently" but he
tidded their records show' no one has called
to let them know about the gunshots.
"WVe need to know," Hall responded.
"But we don't have~ any records (of
calls). You have to get in touch with us."
The airing of the opinions, though
pointed and direct, were good, Bartow
City Commissioner Leo Longworth said.
It is the start of something that will not
end that night. He said the problem in
Tee Circle was one reason he focused this
Town Hall meeting on crime and he en-
coura~ged those who don't feel satisfied to
contact Hall directly as he will respond.
"It's good to listen and exchange infor-
mation," he said. "I wrote down a lot of
concerns and I know everyone wants a
chance to speak but I think everyone will
have an opportunity. There are always
going to be thieves among us but we've
got to get something like this started and
get it out and Joe (Hall) will be back."


Hall said it's not true that no one pa-
trols that area. Mitchell has come to the
police department and when they tracked
the GPS in the patrol cars they discovered
Tee Circle was well patrolled.
"WZe11ave GPS tracking and we pulled
the record of the number of patrols (in Tee
Circle) and it was huge," Hall said after the
meeting. "It was much more than the rou-
tine number of times. This stuff is public
record ... anyone can get this."
But still Mitchell still does not believe
the patrolling is happening.
"I can tell you why it's happening," he
said after the meeting. "It's because of
race. This wouldn't happen in a white
area. I'm not a racist and I've been in the
police but you can stand in my yard and
you can call them and someone may
come to the area, but they'll get right
out of there. If you come to my area
sometime after it gets dark and stay un-
til 11 at night you'll hear the gunshots."
Another woman echoed those com-
ments in the Town Hall. She asked why
no one responds to the gunshots that
are fired every night.

them the ability to expand programs,
as well.
"The IT program will be housed in
- Bartow with the most advanced offer-
ings available. Things are moving very
fast" in this area, he noted. "I could
talk for hours, but I won't do that," he
laughed.
Holden took the podium again and
said she "could talk for days" about
the project.
"These are not pie in the sky dreams
of what may be possible in the future,"
she said. "These are living, breathing,
thriving programs that will now have a
chance to be even better."
Saying she was proud they were
able to use a local firm, she intro-
duced architect Phil Wegman, who
stressed the collaboration that makes
the project possible.
"Collaboration is what Polk State Col-
lege is all about."
One of the words that came out of
initial design meetings of what the
building needed to be was jewele"
when discussing what does this build-


COMING' PROJECTS~
The major projects for 2011-12 are:
Stormwater Floral Avenue Retrofit Project
Solar panels at city buildings
Library re-roofing project
Mary Holland Park equipment replacement
Americans with Disability Act Compliance Project
Northeast Force Main Project
Re-roofing of the police building
Headworks Project
Airport Master Lift Station/Sewer Line Rehab Project
Bartow Northemn Connector Phase 1 (Polk County)
Main Street Water Replacement Project
of Commerce and the Clear Springs
Development Agreement, assessment,
employee compensation and a benefits
study and a decision on the electric
rate reduction/economic development
rider.
Long summed up how he believes the
city should operate by saying, "Do the
right thing, for the right reasons and go
about it in the right way ... then let the
chips fall where they may."
After Long answered a question from
one of the attendees, Bartow City Com_
missioner A.J. Jackson stood up and
said a lot of things have gotten done
behind the scenes that the public is not
aware of.
"The man has worked extremely
hard," Jackson said of Long.
The commissioner said he wanted to
publicly thank Long. The audience then
gave the manager a standing ovation.

E"deryme had one goal in mind,
he said: "When your feet are on the
ground, we're trying to make you fly."
Then, to the song "Fly Like An
Eagle" by Steve Miller Band, photos of
the striking, red and black accented
design were flashed across a large
screen, drawing some "wows" from
the audience.
Bartow officials and business leaders
were excited by the official go-ahead of
the project. It's actually a return home
to Polk State College's beginnings. In
1964, Polk Community College opened
at Bartow Municipal Airport.
"Bartow is proud to be there Polk
State College was founded almost 50
years ago," Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director Jeff Clark said.
"The college is a part of Bartow his-
tory, and we're excited that history
will be repeated with this exciting
new project.
"There are a lot of people,
especially Eileen Holden and Stan
Phelps, who have been determined
to make this project happen, despite
the lack of matching funds from the
state. They were committed to see it
to fruition.
"This project will have a signifi-
cant impact on Bartow and its local
economy. The Advanced Technology
Center is one of those projects that
any community would love to have."

ing need to be for Polk State College,
for Bartow, for Polk County, for the
state, he said.
"This will b'e a new type of edu-
cational facility for our community,"
Wiegman stated.
"Polk State College is at the perfect
place and time" and PSC, the city
of Bartow and Clear Springs were "a
perfect conversion."
He called the design "bold but prag-
matic," adaptable for changing needs

and was intended to be matched by
state funds. That hasn't happened yet,
and isn't likely to in the near future.
But, Holden said, "we don't have to
wait to make the magic happen."
The Polk County Commission in-
vested $2.5 million for site work and
infrastructure, and "the partnership
between Clear Springs, Polk State
College, the City of Bartow and the
Florida Department of Transporta-
tion makes further development of
the Polk State College site possible," a
budget overview says.
Deceleration lanes and turning bays
were added to State Road 60 by DOT
and the city installed a new force
main on the east side of town, paid
for by Clear Springs, that will serve
the campus and corporate park.
Besides serving Polk County's busi-
ness and industry with educational
offerings, the Corporate College was
designed by Polk architects Furr &
Wegman, P.A., and will be built by
Rodda Construction, both based in
Lakeland.
PSC Corporate College, which was
formed in 2002, offers programs -
through several institutes: Sup-
ply Chain Management, Advanced
Manufacturing, Design Construction
and Sustainability, Workforce Safety
and Information Technology; high-
tech degrees in engineering technol-
ogy, supply chain management and
computer network technology; and
the Employ Florida Banner Center
for Advanced Manufacturing, a new
brochure explains.
SAll these programs can benefit the
area's economic development by pro-
viding a trained work force for both
new businesses and current ones.
Rob Clancy, director of the Corporate
College, said the new facility will give

we were surprised-to find that one-third
of our residential properties were actu-
ally subsidizing the other two-thirds of
our residential properties with regard
to the cost of fire protection," he added.
"That was primarily due to the way the
service was being funded. That is not
cthe case anymore.
During his speech, Long said racial
relations have improved in Bartow.
"There are still issues out there and
there are issues that need to be ad-
dressed," he said. "There are interested
folks in this community who want to
work toward that end."
Long noted that the Community
Relations Committee "has existed for
quite some time and progress has cer-
tainly been made. .
"Efforts are under way presently to -
enhance those efforts and become even
more effective in the future," he added.
S"I think our community can only
benefit from that."
As far as policy agenda items that
were listed on a sheet provided at the
luncheon, the top priorities for 2011-12
include finding a funding mechanism
for road resurfacing, decisions on water
and sewer rates as well as electric rates,
